Lausanne Diamond League 2022 Highlights: Neeraj Chopra finished first at the Lausanne Diamond League after registering a best throw of 89.08m throw. He couldn’t better his throw in the second attempt, registering a distance of 85.18m. The Olympic gold medallist skipped his 3rd and 5th attempts, before registering throws of 80.04 in his final attempt. Notably, Neeraj had made a foul throw in his 4th attempt. He had earlier pulled out of the Commonwealth Games due to a groin injury. This would be the second time this year that Neeraj would be featuring in a Diamond League event. In the Stockholm Diamond League, Neeraj had thrown a personal best of 89.94m but this was not enough as he finished at the second spot, behind Anderson Peters of Grenada who had registered a throw of 90.31m. The Lausanne Diamong League will be the last chance for all men’s javelin throwers to qualify for the final slated to be played on September 7-8 in Zurich, Switzerland. As things stand right now, Neeraj is at the fourth spot in the Diamond League points table with seven points. It is important to note that only the top six with most points at the end of Diamond League qualify for the final.
